Here we’ll explore the huge variety of red wine styles to be found. From light and fruity Pinot Noir to the smoky, spicy Rioja; the elegant Cabernet Sauvignon to the behemoth that is Australian Shiraz! As well as trying at least 6 more fantastic wines, we’ll also talk about tannin and why some wines get better with age, as well as some other useful tips like why/when you should decant wine and what temperature to serve it at.

 
Week 3 – White Wines of the World

This evening we’ll move on to talk about white wines and taste at least 6 delicious examples along the way. We’ll talk a bit about the grape varieties and what they taste like as well as the wine regions that they come from, consider their potential for food and wine matching and further hone your wine tasting skills. We'll also cover things like use of oak, find out which is better - cork or screw cap, and bust a few wine myths too.

 
Week 4 – Cheese and Wine Matching 
The last evening is all about how to match food and wine. We’ll taste a variety of delicacies with 6 different wines from around the world and understand how a good pairing can complement both. We'll have smoked salmon, goats cheese, and spicy chicken to name a few! You’ll pick up some really useful tips that you can put to good use at home as we talk about the building blocks of wine; acidity, alcohol, tannin and sweetness and the affect these have on food.
